    You can still believe in climate change and also realize that the cost of converting to fully renewable in 10 years is in the trillions of dollars which is far too much given the minimal change it would make on a global scale. If we are on a 10 year plan the only realistic measure we could take that would be feasible with the current technology is nuclear, which makes you wonder if the threat of climate change is so serious why isn't there a bigger push for the cleanest and safest energy source available.

    I am not a denier, but I also don't live in a fantasy world that the "New Green Deal" was hatched from.

    The OP cited specific candidates who seem eager to support far left concepts. It is, of course, far too early to say whether such a far left candidate will become the DNC POTUS option on the 2020 ballot but the point made by the OP was valid.

    That (bolded above) is most of the "Green" part but little of the "New Deal" part. Much of the objection centered around the "New Deal" parts and much of that was based on the (now deleted?) FAQ responses not addressed directly by the general wording of the non-binding resolution put forth by AOC.

    Actually all anyone needs to do to beat Trump is support America and its values more than him. Democrats should ponder why they have such a void of candidates in that area but that smug nature of theirs will prevent it every time. I advise they continue with the open borders mantra right up until 2020.

    This thread is about candidates who are supporting loony leftist ideas...this is not a leftist idea that is supported by hardly anyone that I am aware of.

    At least stick to a valid topic.

    I am on your topic perfectly. That's your issue. If you want to beat Trump I suggest running and finding normal candidates that reflect American values. And please spare us the dems arent for open borders crap. They are fighting for sanctuary cities on every channel.

    That doesn't seem like it should be my issue. You cited me for being off a valid topic when I clearly was not. Are we seeing a pattern yet? I am.

    OK.

    Tell me which Democrats want open borders.

    Go!

    (I'll need quotes from them)
